Hey guys, so I’m posting the study guide below along with some other resources for you to use to study from. Focus your study time on things that you’re having trouble with first and them move into things that you understand well. This was you won’t be stressed studying things you don’t get right before the test because the last things you’ll be studying will be the stuff that you get the best =)
Hey guys, here are some resources to help you study the material that we’re covering in class. Remember that there will be no test on this material, you will be assessed on it through your final exam. The exam will have a lot of Cell Division questions on it.
Cell Division Study Resources:
- YouTube Cell Division Playlist
- Mitosis Worksheet Key (must be on your Dearborn Schools account to access) (will accept telophase or cytokinesis for #6, the question about A and D in the matching section with the images)
- Meiosis Review Worksheet Key (must be on your Dearborn Schools account to access)
- Mitosis Powerpoint Slides
- Meiosis Powerpoint Slides
Hey guys, so we have our test coming up tomorrow (Thursday for 2nd hour) and I wanted to post a few last minute resources for you to use. While we were playing our Kahoot review games today you should have been paying attention to what things were giving you trouble and what things you have nailed down. Most of you have Nucleotide structure down pretty well, but need to study up on Protein Synthesis (transcription and translation).
Here are the Resources:
- Power points from class
- Amoeba Sisters YouTube Playlist (We will NOT be covering DNA Replication, so don’t worry about that video. All of the others we watched in class.)
- Don’t forget about your notes and handouts from class!!! Those will be very helpful! I suggest having them out when you watch the videos.
Make sure that you understand how to read the word problems correctly to get the information you need from the paragraph. Things like figuring out what the genotypes are that they’re asking you to cross. Are they asking for genotypes or phenotypes of offspring?
Reminder that the test is on THURSDAY =)
Email me with questions if you have them.
Test moved to Friday. Here’s some stuff to study from.
Here is a link to the slides from class. The material on the test will start with slide #58 and go to the end of the presentation.
Here is a link to the YouTube Playlist with several videos from class in it. This is a useful refresher.\
Don’t forget to look through your notes and materials from class as you’re studying. They are probably your best resources
Hey guys, so many of you are missing a lot of formative homework assignments. You can still turn these in before the end of the Card Marking next Friday for partial credit. If you do not turn these in they will turn into 0’s and start hurting your grade.
Here are the slides from class on Evolution. We’ll be quizzing tomorrow on Cladograms, convergent, divergent and coevolution. This information can be found from slides #59-87 in the powerpoints from class.
Hey guys, here’s a link to the video that we watched in class for our notes on cladograms. I recommend watching it again and making sure that you’re satisfied with your notes.
I’ve added the video to the Unit 6 Evolution YouTube Playlist as well. Here’s the link to that playlist.
Hey guys, so with the way that the lesson was a little rushed today made me think again about giving the test tomorrow. So I’m postponing the test until the Tuesday after break, 2/28. Tomorrow we will review our evidence with our groups and make a final draft of our whiteboard posters and present our findings to the class. Monday we will refresh and knock the cobwebs off… Tuesday we test.
Hey guys, so when I was gone on Friday you worked with Ms Kukeski and the sub on brainstorming as many important vocab words about Evolution as you could. You used THIS FORM to do it. If you need a copy, you can click on the link and print it. I want you guys to fill out 10 Frayer Models for Wednesday . Here is a link to a frayer model document. 8 of the words need to be the words listed below. The last 2 should be words that you aren’t sure about and need to focus on. You get to choose those two.
- Natural selection
- Struggle for survival
- Genetic variation
- Differential survival
